Addison Wheeler Fellows

Addison Wheeler Fellowships are funded through the bequest of Addison James Wheeler to encourage 'efforts for increased knowledge of people and their make-up so as to enable them to make better use of their life here on Earth'. The Fellowships are designed to provide young researchers of outstanding promise with three years to pursue original ideas, free from teaching and administrative responsibilities. The Fellowship has provided over 30 researchers the opportunity to pursue new research ideas of their own design, undertaken in collaboration within academic researchers at Durham University. Current Addison Wheeler Fellows are listed below with a full list of former cohorts listed on the Previous Fellows page.
